Washing the face with pure pressed plant oils is an ancient Ayurvedic method to cleanse and gently exfoliate the skin. Oil washing was then introduced to central and southern Europe by nomadic Roma women who emigrated from northern India in the 14th or 15th century.
Using oils is a natural way to help protect the natural lipid layer of the skin and the good bacteria that live there. The basic idea behind slathering your face in oils is “like dissolves like", it balances oil production, helps acne and melts your makeup right off while nourishing and hydrating your skin.
The main benefits of cleansing oils are:
– Deep cleanses impurities and dead skin cells.
– Leaves skin feeling soft, smooth and hydrated!
